In 2006. I was working with Merlin organization in the health program in South Darfur. There was one of the EID holidays that were being celebrated. In this case most of the staff were surposed to be on holiday, but a day before the holiday fighting broke out between 2 communities in an are known as Muhajaria. The 2 facilities around this are were overwhelmed. My colleague and I were resposnsible to manage the mobile team that was surposed to go on EID holiday holiday. When we received this report, I called on my colleagues and requested them to volunteers knowing how important the EID holiday was for them so that we help treat the wounded people. They all agreed and we set out for the mission. we worked in one location for 2 days and on the third day we fall under ambuse and our vehicle was carjacked in the middle of a bush. personal and agency property was lost. Most of the staff were broken hearted but I encouraged them, and asked them to count the lives that had been saved other than propery because property lost can be recovered but not life. The team was encouraged and we all were rescued to safely and later continued serving the community to save life. I encourage the volunteer spirit because it give fulfilment in service.

Je suis gestionnaire comptable de profession, employé par l'Association Guinéenne pour le Bien Etre Familial (AGBEF/IPPF) Guinée Conakry. En 2006, nous avons développé un vaste programme de planification familiale et de la santé de reproduction financé l'ONG Plan International Guinée à l'intention des populations rurales de la Guinée Forestière. Dans ce programme nous avons formés 812 Agents Communautaires (AC)sur les méthodes de la contraception utilisée en Guinée, la sensibilisation sur les voies de contamination du VIH et les moyens de lutte contre le VIH, la distibution des produits contraceptifs et condoms aux femmes à l'âge de procréer. Mes taches dans ce projet étaient de préparer et déposer toutes les quantités de produits contraceptifs qu'un AC devrait avoir pour chaque trois mois ainsi qui suit pour les autres trimestres. En suite produire les rapports d'activités et de distribution des produits. A travers ce projet nous avons touché plus de 200.000 mille personnes, nous l'avons fait de façon bénivol dans le cadre de l'amélioration et de la réduction de la mortalité infantile et maternelle dans notre région. Je vous remrcie humblement d'avoir pensé à moi en fin de patarger mes experiences avec vous et vous dire que je suis disponible de travailler comme volontaire avec vous partout où vous voudrez dans ce monde. Mercie.

I LIVE IN ERBIL KURDESTAN , IRAQ. I WORK IN AN INTERNATIONAL HOSPITAL.
THERE IS A LOT OF MONEY HERE BUT PROGRAMS AND PLANS FOR HEALTH AND SANITY ARE POOR.
MOST OF PEOPLE SUFFER FROM HYPERTENSION, DIABETES MELLITUS, CANCERS, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, AND OTHER DISORDERS.
THEY SPEND A LOT OF MONEY ON TREATMENT AND INVESTIGATIONS. SMOKING IS COMMON, GYNECOLOGIC PROBLEMS ARE SAME. THERE IS LITTLE TENDENCY FOR TREATMENT OF WOMAN BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF HUMAN RESOURCES.
NO HEALTHY WATER. PEOPLE USE BOTTLED WATER AND IN THE FUTURE, THE EMPTY BOTTLES WILL BE A BAD ECOLOGICAL PROBLEM. I SUGGESTED THAT SELL THE BOTTLES WITH A HIGH PRICE, TO BE GIVEN BACK TO STORES. ONE DAY I ACCUMOLATED THE BOTTLES IN MY CAR AND WHEN WAS CARRING TO GIVE BACK TO ONE CENTER, SOMEBODY CAME AND ASKED ABOUT THESE TOO MUCH BOTTLES. POLICE CAME AND I HAD A BAD TROUBLE THAT DAY.

Arua, a town in the West Nile region of Uganda is an area where consistent access to healthcare was lacking after years of civil strife and instability. Because of its geographic isolation most people live on subsistance farming or migrant work. I am a Clinical Health Psychologist that decided to take a year long leave from my university city hospital practise in Montreal Canada in order to volunteer with Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres). In 2011 I managed, supervised and trained hospital staff in Arua to respond to the mental and emotional health needs of a large cohort of patients living with HIV and/or TB. From issues of mortality, morbidity, nutrition, bearing healthy children, family/community support, prevention, fighting stigma and long term healthcacare management, MSF continues to work hard to provide quality care in this 10yr project. I also trained volunteers made up of "expert patient groups" to form a core part of the patient education and prevention program that is growing and benefitting patients, families, and youth.

Fui UNV en el año 2005, mi área de trabajo fue salud, trabaje como asesora de los cursos maternos peri natales en el instituto de formación Inhambane -Mozambique .
Llegue a esta parte de Africa , cuando la muerte materna era de 1500 por 100,000 nacidos vivos. Fue toda una experiencia y un gran reto , preparar a las jóvenes para que esta tasa de mortalidad disminuyera.Me esforcé por lograr día a día , que en los hospitales a donde llegaban las jóvenes a realizar sus practicas se diera un trato humanizado, con calidad y calidez . Fue la primera promoción de enfermeras intermedias las que se estaban preparando en este centro de formación , trabajamos duro en cada guardia en los hospitales de Inhambane , Chicuque, y Gaza en donde nuestro compromiso fue dar lo mejor de si para evitar una muerte materna mas.

Para mi fue frustrante el dejar un trabajo a medias , por que al cambiar de Ministro de Salud todos los voluntarios desplazados en varios distritos de Mozambique tuvimos que salir. Pero al mismo tiempo me embargo un sentimiento de agradecimiento por la experiencia tan maravillosa que puede tener al lado de este gran grupo humano, aprendí mucho de ellos y se que en donde este cada una de las jóvenes que prepare esta un poco de mi.

VOLUNTEER AT A LOCAL HOSPITAL
Written by Margaret K.B Rukindo. Iam a Registered Nurse by profession and employed by Kabarole District Local Government (Uganda). In May 2008, I offered my 4 weeks annual leave, and Volunteered to work at Joint Clinical Research Centre in Fort Portal Regional Referral Hospital, Fort Portal Municipality in Western region of Uganda. I was involved in activities like HIV Voluntary Counseling and Testing, Health education, dispensing of Anti Retro Viral drugs, Stigma fighting in people living with HIV/AIDS and Follow-up of cases on Anti retro viral Therapy for compliance and adherence. Through and out of this little created time, I felt I gave a noble service and changed livelihoods with better health care. Voluntarism did not only enhance my skills and knowledge, but has continued to inspire me every other day; I think of volunteering in a more challenging setting in which I would get an opportunity to apply my Nursing\ medical health knowledge simultaneously in an International organization. Thank you.
